TC Electronic PLETHORA X3 Toneprint Pedalboard

No Compromise Space Saving

TC Electronic PLETHORA X3 is your flexible collection of up to 127 mini boards within your pedalboard – just like the original PLETHORA X5. In comparison, the only hint of a compromise is 3 slots instead of 5, but you may well find that beneficial, as it takes up less precious real estate on your pedalboard!

Rest assured that the sound quality and flexibility is every bit as hard rocking as PLETHORA X5.

Mix. Match. MASH!

Load any one of your favorite TC Electronic TonePrint effects in any one of the 3 pedal slots. Then add up to 75 custom, swift-recall TonePrints to each effect and you’re good to go. Once you have buckled up and got your fingers flying, step up and MASH the footswitches for mind-bending expressiveness.

Each footswitch acts as an expression controller with customizable mapping. Tailor each effect and MASH-functionality to catch your drift and fit your playing style perfectly!

Global Goodies – UniTune and Cab Sim

To save even more space on your board, we integrated UniTune for easy access to an ultra-precise and responsive chromatic tuner. We also added the option to engage cab sim at the end of your signal chain if you record direct to an audio interface or gigs without an amp, going direct to a PA system.

Following Your Flow

PLETHORA X3 can be set up to fit your logic. It may not be the most mind-blowing feature PLETHORA has under the hood, but it fits perfectly into our guitar philosophy of never standing in the way of your creativity, and it will make a real practical difference if the rest of your pedal board’s signal flows in a certain direction.

Connect. Upload. Go! PLETHORA X3

Connect the free TonePrint App to PLETHORA X3 via Bluetooth to effortlessly import scorching sounds from our ever-growing TonePrint library. In other words, today PLETHORA X3 will drop your jaw onto your lap – tomorrow it will hit the floor. The keyword here is “future-proof!” Speaking of, we’ll keep your PLETHORA X3 cutting edge with regular firmware updates, including new boards, TonePrints, and more…

Cool and Hot Ways to Take Control

When you have designed your PLETHORA X3 boards, you want easy and intuitive control. Once your drummer counts you in, the time for deep editing has passed and on-the-fly control is all that matters. Each pedal on PLETHORA X3 can be adjusted fast via three simple knobs – or you can assign specific effect parameters to each of them, transforming them into Hot Knobs.

Loop. Swap. Play! PLETHORA X3

A Tape Deck Looper is built right into PLETHORA X3 for quick, simple and intuitive looping on the fly and what’s also fast is the Quick Swap feature that lets you reorder your signal chain easily between songs – or even mid-song if necessary.

Set it. We Won’t Forget It.

PLETHORA X3 automatically saves your settings as you go. No need to constantly remind yourself to hit that “Save” button or fear losing your latest effect preset. We want to give you peace of mind, knowing that PLETHORA X3 has your back once the music starts playing!
